Sharing blogging love is super important, which is why this monthly post is one I really enjoying drafting up. Everyone out there writes wonderful, interesting ideas, so here I’m highlighting my favorites in May. I hope you like them as much as I did.
There’s nothing better than when another blogger writes about something that’s been on your mind for a long time! “Feminism” in YA has been pretty problematic for me lately. It’s like the world wants to equate a strong female with physicality and their ability to kick ass. There are so many other ways to be a strong woman, and I’m so glad that someone took time to write about it. Wonderful article!
This series on Book Princess Reviews is probably one of my favorite in the blogosphere. Mandy never fails to make me laugh, and I spend the entire time reading and nodding in agreement. Why doesn’t my hair flow like a Disney Princess?! Why don’t birds flutter down into my hand when I’m outside singing?? I need some squirrel friends to sew me a dress! Disney, Mandy is right, we feel bamboozled.
I liked this entire article. I’m always decluttering my bookshelves and looking to make space for new favorites. Not only does the post offer discussion, they also included a handy dandy flow chart to help us be real with ourselves. If we’re not gonna read it, we don’t need it. I know I’ll be using the chart down the line when I’m ready for another purge!
